of that with the connection with the port and the next bond so it serves as a great example how we use the park bonds to of benefit of all of our users and residents and especially because we want our southeast sector to continue evolving in a positive way for everybody. it has been a trial for many of the residents here for many years because of the leadership of the different agencies working together with environmental advocates to make sure we strike that right balance we can have the spaces used for the different use and it is enjoyment of the environment at the same time for the residents. thank you for being here with this announcement. we get four things out of this. a dog run, heron's head park with the landscape and wonderful access to it. we have the literacy for justice modernization here and of course we have the bi- directional lines for the bicycles and thanks for being here and congratulations to everybody. it has been a great part of this collaboration. this great team work and go giants and now go warriors.

to introduce also monique moyer director of the port. who she began -- became director of the port she noticed how much energy and funds were being focused on the northern waterfront and requested whether or not we could do more in the southern waterfront and i think these projects are an example of how we responded to that challenge, so monique moyer executive director. [applause] >> good morning and thank you. it is wonderful to see so many of our friends and supporters and hard workers here today. how many of you are here at heron's head for the first time? a show of hands. not many. that is terrific news. well welcome back. this is one of the greatest places in the city i am fond of saying. it's visionary. you heard about that from the mayor already and part of it is san francisco moving forward in a way that other cities just don't do. first and foremost other cities do not pass general obligation bonds of this type for a park and none for waterfront parks so we are already ahead of game that way, and we are proud of the generosity of the electoral for supporting that vision. secon

the explore or yum is and it moved back up here. but in the 1950s, the port was coming out of world war ii, was trying to understand what container station was going to look like, and they commissioned a study that looked at the economic impact of the port to the city. * that sounds familiar, does continue, mr. mayor? and particularly to how the port could participate in the city's tour and commercial industries as well as their cargo industry, and specifically that report found that this area, since we were moving into containerization, were no longer really needed for cargo, that cargo would be better off being in the southern waterfront. and we would have this area devoted to more commercial activities, entertainment, dining, et cetera. and, so, in the early 1950s, the port moved forward and had the franciscan restaurant built. as part of that. and this area we are standing on was an old timber wharf that supported parking for the fisherman's wharf area, of course, all the other restaurants developed over time. * and this old wonderful car ferry slip used to move railcars on and off of
) ... >> my name is byron webb. i'm a development director with the port and i want to welcome to heron park. it was built in the wetlands in the bay view community adjacent to the indian basin. it is approximately 22-acres and we are here to celebrate the expansion of the wetlands and also the creation of the first bidirectional bike way in the city and in this neighborhood. with that brief introduction -- the reason that we're here i wanted to introduce the mayor and have him speak to these two important projects for this bay view community.

and our partners at the port and rec and park and dpw. so i would like to close really by saying really that our experience here locally as well as a lot of research has been done both in the u.s. and throughout the world has shown that building bike facilities like this, ones that are connected and ones that are convenient and for people of all ages and abilities is important to increase bike mode share and that will help ensure the goal of having 20% trips by bike by the year 2020 so thank you very much. [applause] (train horn). >> the port manages the seven and a half miles of waterfront, and for planning purposes the area is divided into a number of subareas. we are in the southern waterfront sub area and within each subarea we have a number of stakeholders but we always have an advisory committee that we work closely with, so the southern waterfront advisory committee has played a key role in the creation and development of a blue green way project, and has been an active participant in supporter of these two developments, the expansion of heron's head and the bike way on cargo wa
port was absolutely mandatory when you have this event. i said to the australian staff, because of that we are closer neighbors right now. here you can see an example that was before the earthquake, the distance of the low tide. and now it's absolutely far away. so some marine small sea life in there absolutely disappeared. that's another effect you can see a lighthouse in there before tsunami and where is the lighthouse in the middle of the island down there after the tsunami. so the bottom is absolutely came up. another example. another effect of -- global effect. because of the change of the mass of the earth, because it moves so it change slightly the configuration, it has an effect in the axis rotation of the globe. it moved 8 centimeters north pole to the east and that means rotation increased 1.26 millions of seconds so you work less because of chili right now, but it's an impact you have to take into account that happened because of that earthquake. here i can show you a set of photographs of the destruction in the coastal villages, most of them was because of the ts
he used to be in the ports. this type of boxes. >> (speaking spanish). >> so they were sit over these big boxes and play over them. >> (speaking spanish). >> but for the blacks these type of instruments were not allowed to be played because they were too loud and for the church they will provoke movement that was not appropriate. >> (speaking spanish). >> they could also work as a form of communication with the drumming patterns. >> (speaking spanish). >> this was what was going on in africa. >> (speaking spanish). >> and from some of the sounds they used to play that we almost lost all of them we still have some that he remembers. >> (speaking spanish). >> for instance -- >> (speaking spanish). >> this means "attention be alert. something is going to happen". >> (speaking spanish). >> wake up. wake up. >> wake up, wake up.

nothing was safe. in the port activities, the containers, it's impressive derelict, you have it take that into account in places where you put containers in there because it was a big problem. and infrastructure also have some things was destroyed. bridges, airport. that's in santiago, absolutely far away from where the epicenter was. in terms of people who was meeting close to 500 people, 150 was because of the tsunami, 350 because of the earthquake. that is why, i show you why later. in certain areas over there just in -- 47 people died at once because they are on an island 100 meters off the coast and when the first wave came in, the island was completely flooded. people tried to escape so they can't so they climb into the trees and when the navy get in there just about at the top of the trees. that's what we found. the cost was close to 30 billion u.s. dollars. how we organize, well, we have something similar that you have. we have the national emergency office under the internal affair minister and they have offices in the different counties, in the different places in chile
. >> that is the location of what is now the san francisco port authority? >> yeah, port offices. and there is a new office there and slip. this is one of the few places where they recently provided a small boat docking on the waterfront. there are very few places where you can stop on the waterfront, and have built a brand new public dock. so we're down near the waterfront. what do we have here? >> in many areas, it is shallow enough that working with the owners, we can convince the owner that maybe he could use some below grade parking, and we make the decision to go deep below the surface and put the building on a foundation. let me back up. there are several foundation types in san francisco. the one that was used in the 1800's was called a wood grillage. they would chop down trees and it would lay lincoln logs, same principle, make the excavation, and they would lay lincoln logs and build what is called a redwood grillage. fortunately, the termites cannot attack at and it lasts hundreds of years. >> is resistant to decay. >> the second most common foundation, as we move forward, the cement can along.
that was the port and the square before, and that was after. so the change is, it's quite impressive. the same was a local pier and a school. that was a school. nothing. so we put in the navy, the navy put them in there two, three combat ships, type 23's and l ship and transport plus mtaa aircraft transport, aircraft and hell helicopters to try to help people in there. we used the ships to deliver food, clothes and all that stuff without any problem. also we helped in different matters that the navy can do that. for instance here was with divers and with submarine robot to find bodies. getting medical assistance, removing debris, try to rebuild some houses and establish basic services. moving people in and out with the navy ships. that was something this i think is a very good idea because of, as you mention here, the shock where everybody is in shock, one officer had the idea to talk with people of the university to provide a group of clowns to the island. so we put it in there and with the navy and the clowns were coming down, everybody on the island was so surprised. it breaks everythi
as to reconfigure the streets in that area and the port of san francisco is also working to rebuild the quint street lead track. that facility oh facilitate -- facilitates a lot of their activities. there are a number of different plans ongoing and this project will need to be compatible with those. give you an update on what we have done since we came to the board for appropriation back in march. that work has included really looking doing some additional due diligence and looking at the design the cal trains developed and coast estimates. to review, we had designs proposed two of which really are the one that's would meet our needs in terms of local access and facilitating that station. one of those is a wider bridge option that would allow existing quint street to continue under the tracks while allowing platforms on top. that bridge exceed significantly in the amount of funding that we have available. the other remaining option is a berm option that would essentially extend the railing across quint street closing the existing quint street but facilitating a future station. that would cost about

orleans, pascagula and gulf port, mississippi. we thought we had dodged the bullet and then the levies broke and who would have predicted that there was a sea of humanity in the super dome that basically was in extreme miss? who would have predicted in this day and age we would lose many, many people based on the fact they couldn't be medevacked, that the hospitals themselves had been flooded and the hospital staff was having to carry critically ill patients up to the top floors to avoid the water that was filling in the rooms. who would have predicted that? and were we set up to handle that? and who would have predicted in the early goings there would be civic disorder and civic disobedience and lack of command and control and then the military came there and provided that stability for a while until the civic authorities took over and eventually got things moving in a fairly organized continuum. we learned a tremendous amount of lessons from that, lessons that i hope no other city will ever have to repeat again. but the bottom line is it is so critical at this point to talk about

adopted. i was concerned that the puc would not be on equal footing with the port of san francisco that is getting substantially more money out of that bond. i asked supervisor elsbernd, would you please amend the bond. but it was right down the wire, and he said if we start amending the bond, it will open up all kinds of things. but assured us that this commission, it's your bond money. and i assume that you would like to use your watershed report and your intelligence to come up with a viable plan. i also had that same kind of assurance from the lead staffer at rec park. so it wasn't written into the bond, but that was the intent. >> mr. decosta. >> first and foremost, i would like to thank our elders for being very articulate in giving us a history of some that is a treasure. now people at home, when you say watershed, they may think it's a shed on a water. no, a watershed is an underground lake, and in this case stretches from the persidio all the way to lake merced. now when we worked out of persidio, we had a lot of reports done by the corp of engineers and others, dealing wi

question i have now is i believe the permit holder had made some effort to have the survey port blend in a little bit more and i just wonder if some further tweaking of that could make even more of a difference. i don't know elements well enough to be able to say that but -- >>> at the whereas meeting this matter was before us, i found that the body and everything was out of place. it was not an attractive building or anything like that but it seemed out of place and out of scale and i do prevent appreciate the work and effort put into trying to address the concerns raised by the appellate and and to an extension it's somewhat of a modification and some effort, i think. it's certainly more acceptable than it was the last time we were here. i think the scale still i would have opted the top four being taken off but the reduction is some movement but, i think the back of the building looks dramatically much better. and i think more palatable to those who reside behind it and i'm willing to uphold it priding that it's code client and all of the issues held by the zoning and administ
